Ryu Seung-ryong joins Personal Taste

This may not attract as much excitement as the hot younger cast, but I’m stoked that Ryu Seung-ryong will be joining MBC’s Personal Taste. He’ll join Lee Min-ho and Kim Ji-suk as their professional rival when the men, who all work as architects, compete for bids on building projects. (Meanwhile, Sohn Ye-jin is the daughter of a famous architect.) Ryu’s character gives Lee’s character something of a hard time at first, but eventually recognizes his skills.

Ryu Seung-ryong has the gravitas to play villainous roles, but he also has the dry sarcasm to turn a straight-man character into a hilarious foil, as he did in last year’s action-comedy Level 7 Civil Servant. (He was the endlessly beleaguered senior agent to Kang Ji-hwan’s bumbling rookie spy.) Looks like he’ll be playing an antagonist-turned-ally, which ought to be fun.

Ryu’s last drama role was in SBS’s Painter of the Wind, nearly a year and a half ago, and he has had a number of film roles recently, such in the mystery-thriller Secret (with Cha Seung-won), the upcoming Bean Paste (with Lee Dong-wook and Lee Yo-won), and Uhm Jung-hwa’s new thriller Bestseller.

Personal Taste will hold its first script reading on February 17, then begin filming. It premieres on March 31 (the same day as Cinderella’s Sister!).

he won't compete with Lee Min Ho and Kim Ji Suk to get Son Ye Jin, right?
And who will play as SYJ's famous father?

I'm really looking forward this drama.

AHhhhh i do not want to get all excited about the cast and have the plot not deliver. Although.. this is a storyline that is kinda cliche but SO FUN to watch....
I just don't want a repeat of triple. I'm going to try to keep my expectations on the low though.

why do March 31st taking so long to arrive? I'm seriously anticipating this drama more and more even now. At first I'm intrigued because of the story itself, it's kinda quirky and funny, but after they've revealed the cast I can't wait to see how it's going to attract me more. I hope it's gonna live up to my expectation. :)

He is good in both Chosun Police and The Painter of the Wind - such a focused yet dynamic actor - a rare gem - would be thrilled to have him as an acting partner!
